ESDSA better approach to eDiscovery

EimerStahl Discovery Solutions llc (ESDS) is a world class eDiscovery services provider that allows our affiliated law firm, Eimer Stahl LLP, to effectively leverage legal talent and eDiscovery expertise in large scale matters. ESDS successfully developed a sophisticated array of eDiscovery practices and services, including the implementation and use of cutting-edge technology, to more cost effectively handle large scale litigation. Eimer Stahl was one of the first law firms in the United States to recognize the value of applying conceptual and predictive analytics to large scale document reviews and productions and to successfully utilize these techniques in active litigation. We gained success and renown in negotiating one of the first eDiscovery orders for the use of predictive coding in litigation (Edwards v. National Milk Producers Federation) as well as demonstrating the ability to handle large cases with a fraction of the resources used by our competitors.
